Tech: Mac OS X Leopard Dock

Reading Time: 5 minutes

I was reading the Show me your Dock series on Grace Smith’s blog and it inspired me to do my own show-and-tell Mac OS X Dock. I can use Windows. I used to know Windows backwards. Heck, I even used to know DOS backwards! But, I’ve been using Macs since forever and had my own since 1996. I loved them way before they became popular. And I love using the command key instead of the control key! Anyway, onto the dock, I love the dock! Since I have a widescreen display, I chose to have my dock running vertically to maximize the screen real estate. I ummed and erred about whether to put it on the left or right hand side for ages (it was, afterall, a life-changing decision! 😉 ) before deciding on the right because I didn’t want it interfering with the tool palettes in Photoshop and such.

Some genius over at photo.net by the name of Federico Sartorio wrote a tutorial about how to hack a PEZ dispenser to become a hot shoe gadget (a ‘hot shoe’ is the mounting part on top of certain cameras that enable you to attach an external flash). I found this over a year ago but it wasn’t till a few weeks ago that I finally went ahead and did it. It is quite hard to find PEZ in Australia, at least, interesting character ones. I got mine from a toy store but Target has an OK range. You can probably also get them at specialized candy stores.

Life: My digital photography workflow

I am a really sentimental person and I know I would be gutted if I ever lost any of my precious photos. So, I have developed (what I consider) an efficient workflow and it works for me. However, I constantly see others who don’t have any sort of workflow and then get upset when they lose photos or can’t find them on their computer, etc. When I say workflow, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s related to work, I am also talking about personal photos. If your photos are important to you, I’d say taking simple measures and precautions would be wise.
